Stephen Cambron Morrison Obituary
August 31, 1923 - January 19, 2018 Los Angeles - Stephen Cambron Morrison, age 94, died peacefully Friday, January 19th. Steve was born on August 31, 1923 Pasadena, CA, a fifth generation Californian and the oldest son of Dr. Stanley Morrison, law professor at Stanford University, and Carroll Morrison. Steve never married and had one brother, Peter Morrison who preceded him in death in 1999. Steve was a graduate of the Peninsula School in Menlo Park, Thacher School in Ojai and Caltech in Pasadena where he ultimately received a Master's degree in Engineering. He served in World War II, trained and then shipped to the Far East. After the War, he returned to Los Angeles to complete his studies at Caltech. He had a passion for Chinese art, trains, antique guns and California history and paintings. He loved picnicking in the mountains that surround the Los Angeles basin and on the beach. He cared about his extended family and kept in touch with members across the country. He loved Yosemite and helped to gather family members for spring visits. Steve lived an active, independent life until days before his death. He is survived by his nephews and nieces - Stanley, Stephen and Madeleine Morrison and Elizabeth (Morrison) Wessel; and great-nephews Peter and Benjamin Morrison, Wyatt Young and Joseph Wessel and great-nieces Melissa Young and Dena Wessel. He will be missed. The family wishes to thank all who made it possible for Steve to live independently and well up until the end. Condolences can be sent to http://goo.gl/EJkPP3 or Elizabeth Wessel, 546 Woodside Terrace, Madison, WI 53711.
